It’s official…I miss the H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks out of sports.

Sports brings people together.  It creates bonds between parents and their children.  It gives a reason for friends to get together.  It allows you to hug a total stranger in a random moment of euphoria when at the ballpark.

And sports can even create magic between the athlete and the fan.    Example?  Check out the video with the Yankees’ Aaron Judge playing catch with a kid in the stands during the game.

I’m not crying…there’s…um…there’s something in my eye!  I just cut an onion!  It’s pollen season!  YOU’RE crying!

Anyway, I miss sports!  Thanks for letting me vent.
